Not so it.fared, when time began, With pipe and flutel It is a genuine pleasure to see the hearty response being made all over the country to the proposal originally coming irom Min neapolis music-lovers last April and sec onded at once by the Brooklyn Philharmo nic Society for Mr. Theodore Thomas to undertake a concert tour this fall in order that the people might have a distinctive op portunity of testifying their appreciation of his unwearying labors in ad vancinc musical standards throughout the land. Mr. Krehbiel said in the Tribune, indors ing the suggestion, that "it is, moreover, peculiarly appropriate in these times of patriotic reminiscence. A century of musi cal growth found its culmination in Mr. Thomas." He might have said that the century would hare found a very different cul mination, if such it could he called, had it not been for Mr. Thomas. For, certes, this one man has been the most potent single factor In bringing music In America to a point at all worthy of beinz termed culminating. The hearty general response to this croposal is the more gratifying because of the unjust flings made at Mr. Thomas in some quarters on account of his connection with the ill starred National Opera Company. All that sort of thing Is now buried in the avalanche of well-earned testimonials set in motion by the tour cow on foot. r Pittsburg has joined warmly in this demon stration, many of her foremost men harine sifrned the call to Mr. Thoma, signifying their sympathy with the movement and assuring him a cordial welcome in this city. Accord ingly arrangements are mating for a concert here in Old City Hall on Friday, November L The honored conductor and his famous band will be worthily assisted by Rafael Joseffy, the eminent piano virtuoso. In recognition of the popular nature of the request for the tour. Mr. Thomas has grace fully decided to submit to the plebiscite in each city the choice of the programme to be given.

Innes and his Thirteenth Regiment Band, of New York, have been ar dently received by the thronjnng mixture of humanity In the aisles of the Exposition. And the ardent reception is but the natural and proper outcome of the fervent art that dis tinguishes his musical wooinc of the people. The proper outcome none can deny it to be; that it is the natural outcome will, perhaps, not be acknowledged by the misanthrope who looks upon the common herd as unable to appreciate music of a higher grade than "Peek-a-Boo." Such poor souls might well have been surprised to bear the hearty ap plause given(even under the peculiarly adverse conditions surrounding the Exposition music) after the various numbers of the Wagner pro gramme on Fndav evening. That procramme included the preludes to the Meistersinger," "Parsifal" and "Rienzl:" Iwlden's Liebes-Tod," excerpts from the Hollaender,'"'Liohengrin"and"Tannhaeuser;" the"Kaiser-marsch" and "Albumblatt." Pretty solid diet for a much-mixed and moving crowd, some would say. Others might remark: " Par sifal' and 'Tristan' arranged for brass bandT Excuse me, please!" Yet Sir. Innes and his daring programme succeeded, to all appearances, in pleasing both parties. The secret lay in the emotional warmth of his readings, rather than in their deeply analytical nature or in the pure virtu osity of their execution. While the balance of tone and the brilliance and clearness of execution were much above the average, this band has been sur passed in these particulars by several others the writer has heard at home and abroad. But memory does not recall any simi larly constituted band that coula impart richer effect to passages of passionate longing, as in the "Liebes-Tod." or of pathetic yearning, as in the "Parsifal" prelude. Of course it fell far ihort of the string effects, but it was admirable for all that The only inharmonious element in the first part of the programme from a strictly aes thetic point of view was the interpolated solo for trombone played by Mr. Innes. That wasn't his fault, however, but the writer's, who could rot remain to hear Wolfram's "Evening Star" air, and audaciously asked Mr. Innes to play another piece earlier in the programme forgetful how few trombone solos Mr. Wagner had written. That is how the Wagner programme came to be inter rupted by a lively and commonplace waltz, in the course of which Mr. Innes added a cadenza which was fearfully made and wonderfully played. He showed throughout the selection an extraordinary command of the resources of his Instrument, a riotablv pure tone and much artistic taste. Hearing such au artist day after day should demonstrate to the general public how much superior to their petted cornet is the much abused, but truly expressire trombone. Crotchets and Quavers.

The Mendelssohn Club is the name of a new choral society organized on the Bouthside last Friday evening. Conductor Jas. P.

The Mendelssohn Quintet Club for this sea sou consists of Wilhelm Ohliger, concert-mcis-ter; Manassa Adler, violin; Thomas Ryan, solo clarionet and viola; A. Henneberg, solo fluto and viola; O.

If this be true, Sembrich may some day be not merely the future Pattl as many have prophesied, but the greater Patti by richt of conquest over a broader Held of art than La Viva of yesterday and to-day, has ever essayed to enter. The remarkable success attained by Mr. Gustav Hinrichs and his New American Opera Company in the long summer season at the Grand Opera House, Philadelphia, makes it the more matter for regret that he cannot as sume the risk of another winter tour. He has temporarily disbanded the troupe to re-assemble at the same place next summer, mean- wnue going to New York himself as orchestral conductor and teacher. A Madrigal club consisting of ten voices has been formed for the purpose of giving a scnesof three historical concerts at Musical Fund Hall during the present season. At each of these concerts Dr. Hugh A. Clarke will de liver a short historical lecture, occupying about 20 or 25 minutes. One evening will be devoted to madrigals, another to glees, and an other to part-songs. The dates ot the concerts have not as vet. tjeen determined.

The elaborate and effective design for the case of the organ ordered for Carnegie Hall, Allegheny, was received by Mr. C. C. Mellor from Roosevelt's the other day, submitted to Chairman J. B. Scott, and returned approved. One hundred and fifty-one decorated pipes in geniouMy grouped, formed the greaterjpart of the front elevation. It may now be stated, having been unaccountably overlooked last week, that the credit for the noble instrument ordered, from a musical point of view, belongs to Mr. MeJIor, to whom was wholly committed the choice ot a builder and the decision as to size, character and detailed specifications. Vox Bdelow's programmes for the Berlin Philharmonic concerts this season are strictly conservative in character, the only real novelty promised being Eugene d' Albert's Symphony in F. Beethoven is represented by his Ji, TIL, and VHth Symphonies. It is natural to find the erratic Dr. Hans at the other extreme by this time, having so long ago as last month framed the exceedingly unconservative pro gramme for the Hamburg Music Festival, with a Strauss Waltz sandwiched between Mozart and Beethoven. They say he put no more paiuuHing care upon me sympnomes than upon the "classical representative of the Vienna Waltz." Welsh musical circles which Include prac tically all our residents of that nationality have good cause to mourn the death of Captain W. R. Jones. The late Superintendent of the Edgar Thomson was a most constant and lib eral supporter of the St. David's Society and the Cymbrian Glee Clnb. It was feared by some that the loss of his support would overturn the Plans of the former body for holdinc an Eisteddfod next Christmas with prizes aggre gating some $3,500. The carrying out of these plans is still in doubt, because of the uncer tainty of securing enough good choirs to com pete; but the financial difficulty apprehended has been removed by the generous assurances of Mr. T. C. Jenkins, another constant patron of Welsh music. Despite the croaking of the "Know-noth ing" journals, Mr. Arthur Nikisch did land in America, and last night inaugurated what promises to be the best season yet for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The demand for seats, and the premiums bid in consequence, were bevond precedent. The impression made by Mr. Nikisch's personality has been exceed ingly favorable, both upon players and public He is quoted as saying: "I feel that my new position entails two duties upon me. First, to give toe very best concerts that I can, and in the second place to encourage as far as in any wayposible native musicians." What more coula be asked, even by the most rabid musical "patriot?" If Mr. Nikisch fully performs the two duties he refers to, the question of his own nationality will sink to a detail of utter sig nificance. Two young artists who won much praise in the concerts of last summer's Normal School at Kittanninc Mr. Emmanuel Schmauk, pianist, and Mr. Adolpb De Quinze, violinist have at tained especial distinction at the recent en trance examinations of the National Conserva tory of Music in New York. Mr. Schmauk's playing was such that Rafael Joseffy, who figures among the instructors at that institu tion, sent for him the next day and said he wanted him as one of his few personal pupils Mr. De Quinze played so well as to be accepted by the directors as a non-paying pupil. He will have Leopold Llchter-berg as bis teacher. That country school at Kittanninc proved a lucky experience for the young Belgian, who was then a clerk in the big glass works at Crelghton. It was upon the strength of De Quinze's success there that Captain J. B. Ford, of the glass company, was moved to advance him the means for extending his studies in the art at which he had proved himself already so proficient. THE Mozart Club began its orchestral re hearsals last evening in preparation for the opening concert, November 12, for which Mendelssohn's overture, "Jingal's Cave," and Hofmann's cantata, "Cinderella," constitute the programme. An important step forward has been taken in making the engagement of the professlonalmembers of the orchestra such that their attendance can be had at any re quired number of rehearsals. In past seasons the fact that but one, two, or at most three, full orchestral rehearsals could be had for each programme has been, perhaps, the greatest stumbling block in the way of smooth and fin ished perlormance. This season five or six re hearsals will be the rule, and the number will be yet increased when needfuL For the sec ond concert, in February, Verdi's "Manzoni TTpnnipm" hs4 bpon rlincpn tn fill thnnmntn. provided the score and parts can be obtained at reasonable expense. Failing this, some other important work of oratorio rank will be selected. Now is the time for associate mem berships to come rolling in, to show the public appreciation of the extraordinary efforts the public spirited managers are now making.

It is never a grateful task to condemn a play or an actor, but especially mast it ever be distasteful to most critics to speak ill of a woman's performance. Yet of Hiss Helen Barry and the play she made her debut in, "Love and Liberty," it is not possible to say a word of praise. The play is heavy and unnatural in plot and evolu tion, and no compensating qnality is afforded by the dialogue. The character Miss Barry assumed did not suit her in the least, and she would have made a very poor impression here had she not also appeared in a much better play and in a role infinitely more congenial to her. But on the second venture of Miss Barry I can only speak by hearsay. A corre spondent of valued critical ability, however, writes me to the followingeffect: "Miss Barry displayed no little naivete and gracefulness as the Countess IVAutreval, and proved rarely charming in the unlacing ot a cunningly con trived plot." V The wonderful fascination that the horses and fire engine have had for the public ever since Arthur's "The Still Alarm" was first shown to them seems to have abated not at all. The Bijou Theater has been hardly able to ac commodate all who desired to see Mr. Harry Lacy and the great fire station scene. The Prosrnmme. Air unusual interest a'ttaches to the per formance of "The Brigands," at the Grand Opera House to-morrow night, for many reasons. This is one of the brightest, most tuneful and interesting of any of Jacques Of fenbach's works, and certainly ranks with the the best of the comio.pperas of to-day. Though this opera was written 20 years ago, it has had but one production In this country, and that in 1S70 at the Grand Opera House, New xork, then under the Jim Fisk regime. In chatting with Stage Manager Freeman, who has in vented and introduced so much of tne stage business that has helped to place this opera in the front rank of successes, and who arrived in this city last Friday to perfect the arrange ments and rehearsal of the orchestra and stage business for the production to-morrow night, he spoke in the most enthusiastic manner of the prodigal expenditure made by Manager Aronson in the mounting, staging and costum ing of this opera, and expressed perfect confi dence in the indorsement of the Pittsburg public of the presentation. He says that the stage pictures rival any that have before been known in comic opera productions in this coun try, not excepting the spectacular presenta tions of Fisk regime. Certain liberties have been taken with the original stage directions and with the score of the opera, but none but what give added interest and value to the pro duction. The story is written in W. 8.

If feminine (beauty be the choicest inspira tion a poet can have, what a riot of soul and senses is in store for the beloved ot the muse on the Grand Opera House stage this weekl . Peshaps a few facts about the career of Miss Lillian Russell may not be out of place just now, and a friend of hers furnishes the fol lowing: "First of all, Miss Russell was intend ed from childhood for a musical career. She was educated with this intent, under the care rul direction of Mme-JVall, a noted vocal teacher in Chicago, where Lillian Russell was born and reared. Nine years of her early life were spent in the convent of the Sacred Heart, in Chicago, and she graduated from that insti tution with an adequate knowledge of French aud German, in addition to all the Eng lish branches a well-educated American girl nowadays becomes proficient in. At that time tho girl's ambition was to eventu ally make her debut in grand opera, aud this idea was fostered by her relatives and friends. Through the influence, however, of the wife of a well-known New York manager, whose name is sou one or tne most prominent in New York's theatrical world. Miss Russell was per suaded to accept a brief engagement with E. E. Rice in "Pinafore." She was then not more than 17. Her connection with Mr. Rice's "Pinafore" company extended over two months or so, and then, having been wooed and won by the musical director of the organiza tion, she retired from the stage. Later on the necessity came for earning a livelihood by means of her voice. Her return to the pro fessional life she had left when she married came about in a peculiar manner. She was living in a boarding house where several other professional people resided, and among them was a girl who was engaged by Tony Pastor for a specialty act in his thea ter, which at that time was situated down Broadway, opposite Nlblo's Garden. While calling at the house one day to complete some business arrangements with this young woman, the well-known variety manager overheard Miss Russell taking singing lessons in an ad joining room. He asked who she was, and ex pressed a desire to meet her. He did meet her, and a few moments later made her an offer of 850 a week if she would appear at his theater and sing ballads. Fifty dollars a week was a fortune in those days, and nnder her (then) circumstances, it is not surprising that the fol lowing Monday found the name of Miss Lillian Russell ascribed as one of the principal at tractions on the programme at Tony Pastor's Theater. Miss Russell speaks of her experience at this time with more or less satisfaction, as if it was her stepping stone that brought her greater fame later on. She sung such well-known songs as "Kerry Dance," "Twickenham Ferry" aud similar English ballad music "Tho Kerry Dance" created a sensation. It was a style of vocal music decidedly new at that time in va riety theaters, and Miss Russell suddenly found herself surrounded with managers, who made her various more or less flattering offers. At the conclusion of a six months' engagement with Pastor, she became a member of the Mc Caull Opera Company, and made her first ap- Searance under that manager's directions in le "Snake Charmer." Her success is said to have been phenomenal, and in reality it was her real debut into the field of light opera. In the meantime Miss Russell was studying hard in New York with Mme. Cappiani, a teacher well-known in New York and Boston. Her voice grew stronger, rounder and fuller, and she was then as now an artist whose excellent vocal work and true method was such that it placed her in light opera roles in the front rank in her profession. She has created the leading roles in this country of such well known comic opera as "Virginia," "Billie Tay lor," "Polly," apeplta" "Dorothy" and "The Queen's Mate." She has also fulfilled lnm- engagements In England in successful runs of J Tinnma-aiue uaieiy .1 neater, ana at tne London Novelty Theater, then under the man agement of a sister of Mr. Augustus Harris, in "Polly." It is halt a dozen or more years ago that Lillian Russell was literally the queen of comic opera at the Casino, New York. Since that time she has several times changed her man agers, but last year she returned to the scene of her former triumphs, the New York Casino. She made her re-entreo there in "Nadjy" last March. When "The Brigands" was brought out, Miss Russell had the role of Fiortlla, the brigand's daughter, a part that fits her beauty and talents as neatly as a glove should fit her pretty hand. Miss Russell is under contract with Mr. Aronson for two years, and for her services she is paid by that manager lust 20,000 a year. Miss Russell was born in December, ISO, and is consequently just ZS years old. V The career of the "U. S.Mail" since it left Pittsburg has been very satisfactory to its owners. During the past week it has been playing to large houses In towns near Pitts burg, and a really handsome- success was scored at Washington, where the theater was packed, and the reception of the play very flattering. There is a strong Drobabilltv that 15 will ue long obtain a date at a Srst-oUM 'T -oVa. palace.

Disguising themselves as the Princess and her party, the ban dits then repair to the Dnke's palace, with the ultimate Intention of receiving the dowry due the Princess, but their design Is frustrated by the timely arrival ofthe real Princess and her retinue. Ibe Duke, however. In gratitude to Florella for having saved his life, at her Intercession, and upon promise of reformation, permits the bandits to depart in peace. The scenes being laid in Spain and Italy, per mits of many changes and opportunities for beautiful colorings, of which Mr. Aronson has taken every advantage. The first act repre sents a mountain pass In Calabria, with distant view of Salerno and the ruins of an old Spanish castle. The second act is that of a wayside inn, and something entirely new in the way of scenic effects, as it is a house built upon the stage at every performance. It is two stories high, and action goes on on both floors, while to the left of the house is a vineyard, with many vines growing, upon which there are beautiful bunches of crapes. The third act is a new illuminated scene called Lasenda and Pearl solon, painted by Mr. Henry Hoyt, and is said to be far more gorgeous than the famous pink ball room scene in "Erminle." The cos tuming is unquestionably the most-gorgeous ever seen in an operatic production. There are four changes of dress which require nearly 500 costumes, and it is said that one rarely sees such exquisite taste- displayed, harmonious in color, rich in material and never gaudy in effect. A feature of the third act is the Span ish dance by a ballet of 40 young and pretty girls, which 13 soon to become as popular as the lamous "Nadjy" ballet. The entire production is under the direction of Mr. Max Freeman and Musical Director Mr. Gustave Kerker. CAST OT CHABCTEE3.

A babe dramatio treat is offered the theater goers of this city in the production next week at the Bijou Theater, of Sydney Rosenfeld's amusing satire "A Possible Case." The play was given here last season and made a big hit, in fact was generally classed as one of the notable events of the past dramatic season.and its return is almost sure to be hailed with de light by all lovers of pure, clean comedy, and acting of the highest order. It was admirably staged, and nothing was left undone in all the details ot the mimio art, to give Rosenfeld's novel and original theme a perfect presentation and the result was one of the most delightful entertainments of its kind ever given in this city. The subject is one that always has a charm, and is most skillfully bandied by the author. The basis of the plot, it will be remem bered, is the legal complications of several marriages and enforced desertions occurring in different places and under different laws, the plot dealing particularly with the law of deser tion in the Bute of New York. The plav pre sents a remarkable variety of character In the cast and each one is given almost equal promi nence, so that the play jievor lags, but always holds the attention and provokes the mirth ;of the audience. Re garding tne company ine ioiiowmg from the Baltimore American gives an idea of the cast as made up for this season's work: "The cast is excellent. The star character Otto Brinck trhoffis taken by the popular Baltimorean, M. a. Kennedy, who has in this part dupli cated his earlier success as Cattermole in the "Private Secretary." There is something about Kennedy which reminds one of Crane, though he has an originality of manner which belongs to himself. His reception last night was very cordial and his acting delightful. Miss Helen Russell was charming as Violet Jlendoza, and made a decidedly pleasing im pression as the three-times married wife. Her character requires rare skill, and this lies to a considerable extent in concealing it. She gives a very finished piece of acting, and her toilets, too. were quite charming. Miss Belle Archer is another popular Baltimore favorite, who ac quits herself with rare credit as Gladys, the girl who has determined to study law, and in vested that character with fascinating fresh ness. Herbert Archer, as the adventurer, has a character very much like that in which ho made a hit lu "The Wife." and plays it with eoual success. Miss Henrietta Lander nri Messrs. Hansei,Charles Dickson and Edwin S. Belknap also deserve creditable mention." The World's Museum, Federal street, Alle gheny, offers an immense programme this week. It includes besides the regular attrac tions of a museum a genuine full-fledged circus. said to contain all the features of a menagerie and a hippodrome. There will be a real saw dust ring, red lemonade, downs, ringmasters, aerial artists, acrobats, equilibrists 'and tumblers. The circus is the property of Mr. James Geary, who is assisted by the talented Mr. Harry Scott in the management of the museum. As a sideshow, which may be seen without extra charge, there is a centaur, 1. e., a creature half man and half horse, and Fiji Jim and Annie, Barney Nelson, armless wonder "Geo," turtle boy; Selbert, white Moor, and" many other curious wonders. After the show a concert performed by a large and well trained orchestra will be , tendered to the visitors. And the circus, the curiosities, the centaur and the concert will he almost literally given away at the ridiculously low price of 10 cents. A simple silver dime, or two uic&eis. ur iv cents m copper wiu give any man, woman or child a front seat at this great festi val. The new Museum by the Sixth street sus pension bridge is.out for the money, and is get ting a large share of it. It must be added that the great baby show takes place this week, and no less than 50 prizes will be distributed among the contesting Infants. A FiBST-GLASS company, accompanied by a car load of special scenery, will be seen at Har ris' Theater next week in a new version of "She." That the Webster-Brady Company gives a meritorious performance may be judged from the following, from the New York World: "The California version of Rider Hag gard's popular novel "She," made by Messrs. Webster and Brady, and differing in a number of important points from Gillette's arrange ment of the book, was generously applauded by a large audience at the People's Theater Monday night The hit of the evening was made by a mob of real negroes, which the man agement in a moment Of artistic inspiration in troduced. They portrayed tho ferocious Am haggertothome. Miss Marie Rene was an idealistic She, and the performance of Holly by George P. Webster, was an exceedingly fine piece of character work." At the Academy of Music this week Hyde's Specialty Company will play a return engage ment. Hyde's big specialty show includes a host of extremely lever people, whose per. formanees have been heartily enjoyed by pa- w v mv Av.OTa7 u uiuvri van, auo, wao Since Whispers. Fannt Daveupoet was taken III on last Saturday in San Francisco and was unable to play the last night of her engagement at the Baldwin Theater. Mb. and Mbs. P. T.

Rudolph Abonsos; the manager ot the Casino, New York, was married on September 0 to Evelyn Chandler, of Schenectady, N. Y. The affair was kept quiet until a few days ago, when it leaked out. The bride is a non-prof es-sionaL Last week Mr. A. J. Shedden was at Wheeling looking after the Interests of Miss Kate Castle ton, A good many of Mr. Shedden's friends went over to Wheeling to see him, and report that he is in good health and spirits. Miss Castleton will not play in Pittsburg this season, These are rumors of trouble in the "Hands Across the Sea" company, and it is reported that Gas Levick recently refused to go oa without his salary being paid. Manager Kahn has bad several good offers from prominent New York managers to take the play off his hands, but he insists on running it If he will keep it running away from Pittsburg we will not quarrel about the merits of the play. Bad melodramas are seen often enough here, as it is. The Jefferson-Florence comedy company be gin their season to-morrow night at tho Star Theater, at New York, opening in "The Rivals," with Mr. Jefferson in bis familiar im personation of .Boh Acres, and Mr. Florence, for the first time in 25 years, as Sir Zuciut CTrigger. The supporting cast will indnde Mrs. John Drew as Afr. Malaprop, Viola Allen as Lydia Languish, Edwin Varrey as fffr An thony Absolute, and Frederick Paulding as Captain Absolute. The nrices for seats will range from 12 in the orchestra to CO and 25 cents in the gallery. H. B. Conway, the English actor, and Daniel Frohman's 110,000 leading man, is not a little disappointed at the change in the plans which affected his engagement in this country. He was to have had a good role, commensurate with his salary and his professional reputation, in young Mrs. Blaine's company. Her illness has broken up all the plans, and Conway is compelled toplay instead in a new comic play called "Our Flat," Though he will not be seen to as good advantage as it was expected, yet the part is a pleasing light comedy role, and Conway will no doubt do much with it. His real name is Conlson. He is known in London as "Handsome Harry." The influx of English actors has become the talk of the town. Mr. Terriss and Miss Mill ward are now to be seen dally on Broadway. They are melodramatic stars of Great Britain. Terriss is the man who has played such char acters as the Silver King, for long runs in Lon don; and his appearance here is the result of a sort of copartnership with Augustin Daly. When Terriss comes here Augustin Daly man ages him in New York, and when Augustin Daly's company goes to London, Terriss man ages it there. Outside of New York, Mr. Terriss and Miss, Mlilward will be under the management of Henry O. Miner. Mr. and Mrs. Kendal are also in New York, and the influx of uisunguianea isreign artists recalls tne hulla baloo raised last year to exclude foreign actors. The movement was rather a failure, as is oiuiucu uj tug iiuueaa arrivals. Adonis DrxET's new play, "The Seven Ages," produced last Monday in New York, does not appear to have "caught on" very cer tainly yet. The New York Sun says: The house mildly liked nearly all of tho work, but it could not grow actually enthusiastic except at rare intervals, and there was too much slow ness between these periods. All the groupings, choruses and spectacular features were very sightly; the scenery was excellently plcl uresque: the costumes were in soft colors and of enticing cut, and the girls were pretty and numerous in every scene. In these respects there was no departure from the elements which made for "Adonis" much of its triumph, and which may yet win favor for "The Seven Ages." But Mr. Rice's music was disappoint ing, because not all of it was new, and that which had been repeated was not of sufficient sprightliness to warrant the revival. On the whole, there will be need of much revision be fore Mr. Dixey's new venture can hope to du plicate the success of Its predecessor. Nth Cbinexe approves of the Kendals. In the Dramatio Mirror he writes: Mrs. Kendal has a personal charm that is not wholly phys ical. In some sense it is temperamental. beamy, internal. You feel, without being able to interpret It nicely, that she is doing some thing her own way, and that her own way is the best possible way for her. She possesses that fascination that a wholesome maturity alone can confer. We see it now and then In the drawing-room, when some mother who has never ceased to be a favorite, though she has ceased to be a girl, draws all men and women, too, for that matter round her, and compels a mingled respect and gallantry that needs no compelling. Her coquetry in "A Bcrap of Paper" is the rich, mellow coquetry of a woman, not the caprice of a miss. Behind it is a generous subtlety and an easy knowledge: Chance there is none in the comedy for trans cendent exhibit of dramatic power; but there are a thousand chances for the byplay, the sug gestion, the Intimation and the mingled glance and tone that are demonstrations, and she uses them all with a SDontaseltv that ripnnivo nn into the belief that she cannot help it. Last Monday night at the Chicago Opera House, in Chicago, Mr. Lawrence Barrett, after many months of careful preparation, produced William Young's new romantic tragedy entitled "Ganelon." The story of the play is historical, and is located In the Island of Corsica, In the eanj pari uj. uis nintn century, uanelon is a son of that elder Ganelon, who betrayed Ro land at the battle of Roncesvalles, under Charlemagne. In consequence of the disgrace attached to his father's history, the son aban dons his home in France and enters the service of Hugo, the Count of Corsica, The drama deals with the love of Ganelon andBianca, the daughter of Hugo, and the stirring events of the wars between the Saracen and the Corsican. In addition to unlimited opportunities for scenic snlendor, the play possesses the unusual merit of having several parts almost as great as that of the hero. Mr. Barrett was seen as Oanelon, and his impersonation of the role was Pc,SSn??Iy.e?ectlT0 throughout The scenery, by Phil Goatcher, was unusually picturesque and handsome, and the costumes historically correct as well as beautiful.
